### Description:

Understanding Physics Second Edition will be a comprehensive introductory physics textbook aimed at physics undergraduates as well as engineers and other scientists taking a general physics course. Written with today's students in mind, this text covers the core material required by an introductory course in a clear and refreshing way. A second colour will be used throughout to enhance learning and understanding. The textbook will begin with chapters on understanding the physical universe and then using mathematical tools in physics. Chapters 3 and 4 will discuss the causes of motion, dynamics and motion in two and three dimensions. Fields and energy, many-body interactions and rigid body dynamics will be tackled in chapters 5 to 7. Chapters 8 and 9 will handle relative motion and special relativity, respectively. Continuum mechanics, mechanical properties of materials, thermal physics, wave motion and quantum mechanics will be covered in chapters 10 to 13. The next chapters will be concerned with electric currents, electric fields and magnetic fields, respectively. Electromagnetic induction, time-varying emfs and electromagnetic radiation will be discussed in chapters 17 and 18. In the subsequent chapters, the textbook will include the areas of atomic physics, electrons in solids, quantum statistics and nuclear physics, particle physics and astrophysics. The book will conclude with answers to problems and appendices. Worked examples and problems will be given throughout which are designed to be both illustrative and challenging.### Book details
